Welcome to Oak Class!
The class teacher for Oak Class is Mr Morgan and the teaching assistants are Mrs. Cappelina and Miss Gwynne.
Mrs Lee will be working closely with Year 6, teaching every Thursday morning.
The topic for this term is ‘That's Entertainment’, which is a history topic. Children will be exploring the history of British entertainment since from the sixties to modern day and we will be looking at a host of different forms of entertainment, such as films, football, music, fashion, holidays and TV. We will be comparing and contrasting history to modern day and debating what we think is better.
Our P.E day is Monday so please ensure your child has their P.E. kit with them on this day. A reminder that the P.E. kit should contain a white t-shirt, black shorts or jogging bottoms and trainers or pumps. We also have swimming at Malvern College on a Wednesday morning - please ensure swimming kits are brought in!
Should you have any queries or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact us
Oak Class loved their trip to London! The children were struck by just how busy London is and were in awe of the sights all around them! Lots of walking ensued, with sights around every corner. The real highlights were the cruise on the River Thames, the Lion King performance and the views from the London Eye (shame it was raining though!) Check out the photos below.
Worcestershire Wildlife came into school to talk to the class about the effects of litter on our local wildlife. The children role played as birds gathering food for their offspring, with a high proportion of their 'hunting' bringing back food that contained plastic and other harmful materials, they listened to the journey our rubbish goes on through the streams and rivers towards the sea and the negative impacts that this can have on wildlife.
The children then moved on to a litter picking session with Fortis, where they went into our forest area and picked up any litter that they could find.
We took our SATs revision outside today. The children were given the answers to a number of previous SATs questions and they needed to match the answers to the questions. The questions were hung around the playground and Forest School areas. Walking around, I could hear lots of great mathematical discussions about how to work calculations out and there was a lot of amazing teamwork on show!
Internet Safety Talk
The police came into school to talk to Year 5 & 6 about internet safety. They reminded the children about the age limits on certain games and social media avenues and that they are there for a reason - to protect young people from potentially inappropriate content. The police recapped how to behave when online and what to do if someone you don't know contacts you and what to do if an unknown pop-up appears.
On Tuesday 22nd January, Oak Class travelled to the Genting Arena in Birmingham to take part in the largest school choir ever! They were part of a 6,501 strong choir that has been learning songs and dance moves since September! The children even managed to perform alongside the likes of Beau Dermott (Britain’s Got Talent contestant) and Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet)! The children loved the experience and were a credit to the school and themselves. Well done Oak Class! Check out the songs and dance moves below, as well as the photos and videos from the evening!
Preparing for Blackout
As part of our Light and Shadow science topic, we have been testing the properties of different materials to see which would make the best blackout blinds.
We had to plan what we could keep the same and what would change so our tests were fair.
Which materials were opaque? If wood is opaque, why wasn't this chosen for the blackout blinds?
Winston Churchill Speeches
Oak Class have been looking at a range of Churchill's inspiration speeches during WW2. We had a go at reading and understanding the meaning of the speeches. The children then recreated the speeches by recording themselves on iMovie before adding pictures and music to create a video. Take a look at the link below to see the finished videos!
